First of all merry xmas and happy holidays to everyone...wherever you are, I hope you're enjoying quality time with your family and loved ones! ?As for me, I am enjoying this xmas with my family on the road ie...the World Cup Downhill Team. ?We are in Bormio, Italy and have a World Cup Downhill this Sunday which means we don't have time to go home for the holidays. Although I miss my friend and family back in Park City xmas in Bormio has a number of fun traditions. ?Some of these include: "borrowing" a xmas tree from the local market, a secret santa for the whole team on xmas morning, a White Elephant gift giving game, and our newest tradition....an 8 course Italian meal on xmas eve. ?
Today we also splurged and went to an old thermal spa in the mountain which has been around in some form since the 1300's. ?They had natural hot and cold baths, steam rooms, saunas, mud baths, the works! ?So if you ever make it to Bormio, Italy I highly recommend checking it out. ?
So...I will post some pics and video from our festivities and keep you informed about the race this Sunday. ?Once again...merry xmas and happy holidays!
